Copa America : Colombia 0-2 Peru

Peru sprang a surprise in the first Copa America quarter-final scoring twice on the counter to beat Colombia 2-0.

Colombia had failed to make their superiority count  in normal time - with striker Falcao missing a penalty and  Dayro Moreno having a fierce shot tipped onto the crossbar.

Peru broke the deadlock 101st minute when goalkeeper Martinez collided with his defender Mario Yepes when trying to catch a high free-kick, and Carlos Lobaton pounced to fire the loose ball high into the goal from the edge of the area.

Peru sealed their semi-final spot in the 111th minute when Juan Vargas scored after a poor clearance from Martinez set up a 2-on-2 counter attack.
